Innisrush signs the Ulster Covenant


In September 1912, some 299 locals from in, and around the Innisrush area, signed the Ulster Covenant (or the 'Declaration' if you were a female), in Innisrush Orange Hall.  Adam D. Glasgow was the agent in charge of organising the signatures. There were also other local signings at Eden Orange Hall, Tamlaght O'Crilly Orange Hall, Killymuck and Tivaconavy.

Innisrush Signs the Ulster Covenant
